Providing you with comprehensive care is our doctors' highest priority. In order to optimize both your eye health and your vision, we use the latest technology, including digital retinal imaging, to deliver the best quality care. Your eye exam is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as near-sightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia as well as potentially blinding conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration.
The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on ones particular age and needs.
Eye Exam for Infants
Infants should have their first eye exam within the first year and then again at age three. If the eyes are healthy and vision is normal we will see your child one more time before starting Kindergarten to ensure they are starting school with the best possible vision for learning.
Exams during school years should be done every year or two and our eye doctors will make their recommendations at the conclusion of your exam.
Eye Exam for Adults
Adults should be seen every year or two if there are no medical problems. Systemic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and arthritis can all cause permanent vision loss and eye exams should therefore occur yearly.
We will communicate our findings with your primary care provider so they know how your eyes are being affected.
For anybody over the age of 50, eye exams should occur yearly because the risk of vision loss or blindness increases and your best ability to avoid vision loss is through prevention.
